Die Lage direkt im Stadtzentrum und damit der Ausblick auf die Dächer der Innenstadt und auf die Kathedrale (besonders bei Nacht) sind es wirklich wert, hier unterzukommen. Preis - Leistungsverhältnis ist unschlagbar. Bett super bequem. Sauberkeit einwandfrei. Das einzige Manko in meinem Fall: keine Toilette/ Waschbecken/ Dusche im Zimmer und auch nicht im Flur. Musste erstmal danach suchen und fand eine Minidusche mit eingequetschter Toillette einen Stock darüber.

Die Herberge liegt im Zentrum von Zacatecas und die Aussicht von der Dachterrasse ist unglaublich.
